It is too bad the Dupnik doesn't enforce the law with the same vigor as Joe. But you all know he is nothing more than a puppet for the Democrat Party.
Thanks, Colin Boyd, for writing about this film and thanks to the TW for publishing the schedule that the film is showing at the Loft.
East Valley NewsNet, go piss up a rope, jodido. Your are the pig.
Fantastic review. Dead on. During the movie, I went to the bathroom and texted, "This movie is horrid. I'm going to hurt myself."
Your line about the "screensaver" look is perfect. There was no magic in this movie. Black magic, maybe, because somehow I was tricked into wasting 16.00 for me and my son.
As the father of two teenagers, I found this column invaluable. I'm sure other parents here can empathize when I say I shudder at the thought of the increasing influence and presence of television in the lives my children. I certainly remember the strain I caused so long ago for my own parents when I began experimenting with television. The long, near hypnotic watch schedule that kept my mom and dad up all night with worry. Don't even get me started on the habits I acquired when we got our first satellite dish.
To think, I was even younger than my kids are now! television are everywhere and it doesn't help that the tv and movies make television seem glamorous and cool. This column helped me really approach the subject of television with my kids in an honest, open and non judgmental way. Because of the insights this column provided, I can sleep a little better and cope with the reality that I can't always be there to protect my kids from television, especially as they become adults. I'm confident that my teens, when confronted by a television show, whether it be network, or cable TV, are much better prepared to make wiser decisions than I did.
At the very least my children certainly know that they can always come to me if they have any concerns, questions or just need my support when it comes to the topic of television, all thanks to this column.
Ah yes, the "tacky" taste of American Movie goers....
Certainly I can't be the only one who despises this lifeless column. This was much, much better when Bob Grimm did it as 'Now Showing At Home'.
Why ruin a good thing?
That scene was FUNNY!!!
"Hollywood ... please ... don't squander McCarthy's talent."
Ya mean the crapping in a bathroom sink talent?
Midroad 3...if you see it on TV someday, watch the Naomi Watts sketch...then switch it off or run away from you TV set.
Was interested in seeing this before the movie critics started weighing in, but the reviews have been so universally bad, I think I'll pass.
Hollywood script writers ran out of good ideas several decades ago. When does "Battleships II" come out???
Hey Sara...I think this film is a lot "smoother" than The Hurt Locker. I didn't notice any shaky cam getting on my nerves.
I'd like to see this, but am wondering if it was filmed in the same manner as "Hurt Locker"...with the handheld cameras? I had to walk out of that movie before I got physically sick. Thanks!
Hi Matt -
Well, for starters, all films are manipulative. Can you name one that didn't ask you to believe something based only on the story it was telling? And while I didn't like the film nearly as much as Bob and agree with you about the strength of Hathaway's performance, I'm not in the 'sappy bullshit' camp with you. I just didn't feel anything larger than a healthy respect for it, but as a production and spectacle, Les Miserables is exceedingly well-assembled.
Anne Hathaway's one-take performance of whatever-the-fuck-the-song's-called is most likely the coolest thing in this 'film', however, the rest of this is just sappy, manipulative bullshit.
Anyone (including Bob Grimm) wanna feedback to me?
It's perplexing to me how Jamie Foxx continues to get jobs despite his defense of Michael Vick's dogfighting operation.
Saw it in LA in a theater with a very good sound system...it was GREAT. I love all types of movies, including action, but this musical is a must see. It will make you wish for more films like this.
Can't wait to see it. Loved the play, and based on your review, I will love the movie.
... so what you're saying is, you liked it.
A last minute change of strategy by the studio. Was supposed to be a wide release and they simply changed their minds at the last minute. It's going to expand a bit as the weeks pass. Just know that Colin and I both love this movie, and you should see it when the studio decides to let us have it....it's really good.
